Our school's fifth graders have Colonial Day each year in conjunction with learning about the colonization of America. Vaughn's took place on Steven's birthday. Ah, so much fun all in one day. The kids have to dress as kids would have then, they have to bring lunch (of course, colonial appropriate, no cold cuts please, or plastic, or foil, hello fabric store), payment for the teacher (usually food), and wood for the fire. They write with quills and ink. Vaughn could not use his left hand (wasn't allowed then). Vaughn thought it was "okay", I think it is kind of fun. I don't recall Steven caring for it much either!
